The Mustangs football team (3-1, 2-1 MAC) came out strong despite rainy weather during their game against Widener University (3-1, 2-1 MAC) to pull out a 49-7 win on Sunday.  

After holding the Pride to a scoreless first drive, quarterback Nyaire Wilson rushed for a 3-yard touchdown. Scoring the other SU touchdowns were running back Maurice Hammond with three, and wide receiver Pat Gorman with one.  

During the high-scoring game for the Mustangs, fifth-year Brody Campbell broke the Stevenson record for most career points scored, setting the new mark at 196 points. Coming into the game, Campbell was seven points away from breaking the record, but his field goal and four extra points helped him achieve that goal.  

“I thought it would be tough with the weather today, but we made it work. I missed a couple kicks, there were 3 extra points – I missed one, one was blocked, and one was a rough hold, but we got it so that’s all that matters.”  

Campbell reminisces on his first few extra point attempts, saying he made his first extra point and missed his second one. Since then, he has seen much growth and decided to come back for a graduate year and play one last season.  

He says his reason for coming back was, “the ability to just play sports for one more year but also the camaraderie with all of my teammates and my friends.” 

Breaking the record for most career points was a landmark goal for Campbell and because he broke the record so early in the season, he can keep adding onto his career total points. By breaking this record, the rest of his goals seem smaller, saying that achieving an all-conference selection is next in line.  

But even with his other small goals, Campbell can finally say he achieved his long-coming dream of breaking the scoring record.  

“But whatever happens, happens. I’m happy now.”
